Why You Should Support #Voiceless4AnimalJustice

On November 6, compassionate Canadians across the country are pledging to go silent for 24 hours in support of the animals whose voices are silenced by industries, and by our legal and political systems.

Many people are shocked to learn that Canada has some of the worst animal protection laws in the western world.

In Canada, there are no federal regulations protecting animals from abuse on farms, in zoos and aquariums, or in laboratories. It’s still legal to import and sell dog and cat fur, animal trophies, and elephant ivory. In Canada, it’s legal to kill and eat your pets.

While many countries around the world are constantly passing new laws protecting animals, Canada is falling behind.

And that’s why Animal Justice exists.

Animal Justice is the only national animal law organization fighting to transform Canada into a kinder country for animals. Animal Justice defends animals by fighting for them in court, pushing for stronger laws, and working to ensure the laws already on the books are vigorously enforced. The lawyers at Animal Justice have made it their mission to transform Canada's legal and political systems to bring animals the protections they desperately need.

But we need your help to make it happen.

#Voiceless4AnimalJustice is a three-week community fundraiser to support Animal Justice’s vital work to transform the legal system and protect animals from the heartbreaking cruelty they face on a massive scale. On November 6 (or another day of their choosing), participants will take part in a 24-hour vow of silence to raise awareness about the animals who have no voice in our legal and political systems.

Please make a special gift to support our mission of compassion, or register today to join #Voiceless4AnimalJustice!
